ALTARCATIONStheatre · steve julian · Ages 16+ · world premiere · 85 mins · United States ·
“A bishop. A priest. A woman. A boy.”
A forced reunion between a Catholic bishop and the woman he soiled when she was 15, while a priest preys on a trusting teen. Snatched from today’s headlines, “Altarcations” examines lust, absolution, accepting apologies, and whether any place is safe.
With Travis Michael Holder, Robert Keasler, Dylan Jones and introducing Drew Hellenthal. Written and directed by Steve Julian and developed at EST/LA’s playwright’s unit.

TIANANMEN ANNIE is a comedic and heartfelt coming of age story about finding your Chinese soul while getting swept up in a revolution. It is Ann's true story of living in Beijing as a student in 1988-1989, and working for CNN during the Tiananmen Square Uprising. Told through the voices of the people that shaped Ann's year including one of the hunger strikers and an old-woman with bound feet, Ann weaves a story of hope and loss against a background of China on the brink of change.
